    Alicea 6 Hazing isn’t always older students; it can even be younger students. In 1903, eleven –year –old Alva Day, ten-year old Raymond Adams, and seven-year-old Raymond Waterman invited nineyear-old Ralph Canning to a pasture that the boys went to. The three boys had previously made a fire in the pasture and heated rocks until they were scolding red. They then made Ralph stand and sit naked in the scolding hot rocks around the fire. They also held him down, while he struggled and screamed, they then stepped and jumped on him on the hot rocks. Ralph later struggled home and died two weeks later. It was later found out that the boys had read about college hazing and wanted to try it themselves, so they made Ralph Canning, a very vulnerable,…

    Hazing used to be a problem in Greek life. I want to emphasize the word “used.” Hazing used to be an incredibly large problem nation-wide in sororities; However, hazing is no longer an issue in most sorority chapters. Of course I cannot say it never happens because that would be an extremely far stretch of the truth, but I can say that the University of Kentucky has a strict “no hazing” policy currently in effect (University). In no way, shape, or form is hazing permitted on the university’s…

    There I was, sweat dripping into my eyes, my heart pounding out of my chest, with legs that felt barely recognizable to the rest of my body. Yet there I was, enjoying the feeling. How did this happen? How did the girl, who had never set foot into a gym, end up training for a half marathon? I was never the most athletic person. To be fair, I always enjoyed leisurely exercise, like going on a hike on the weekends, or canoeing at my cottage, but never came close to a “jock”. So when I started to…

This is caused by members of a certain organization forcing new people to drink excessively and not taking care of them when they are falling all over themselves or as far as being not responsive. However, in most organizations people do take in account how much people can handle and if these same people…
